Hear directly from the governmental agencies that could hire you and learn how you can become a contract appraiser, and then participate in the Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions (Yellow Book) course.

By the time you complete the conference you will be well-versed in the kind of appraisal assignments that you could undertake and what the federal contracting process is.  You will learn where to go to learn about new assignments, how to bid on them, and what the common errors and weaknesses are in appraisals that are prepared for federal agencies.

UNIFORM APPRAISAL STANDARDS FOR FEDERAL LAND ACQUISITIONS (‘Yellow Book’)

This 3-day course is designed to provide students with an increased understanding of the Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions, Sixth Edition.  This ‘Yellow Book’ course is based on the 2016 Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions.  It provides participants the opportunity to:

  • understand better the current edition of the Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions,
  • demonstrate an increased knowledge about the application of the appraisal process to valuation assignments for federal land acquisitions,
  • evaluate the content and level of information and analysis required to communicate the results of an appraisal prepared for federal land acquisitions, and;
  • connect the legal foundation/rationale/guidance that govern recurring valuation problems and specialized appraisal issues unique to federal land acquisitions.

The objectives are met through a combination of lecture, discussion, problems, and case studies.  While the primary focus is, of course, on the UASFLA (Yellow Book), the Uniform Relocation and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 (Uniform Act) and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) are also discussed.

 

Want to take the ‘Yellow Book’ course and can’t attend in June?  Join us for ‘Yellow Book’ at Summer Education Week in Omaha, Nebraska in July!

‘Yellow Book’ is also being offered in South Dakota on October 18th, look for more information on additional offerings coming soon!
